    Hi All,

    The other week i helped one of our fellow aD users to fix their email account using Outlook Express... He couldnt connect or recive or send any emails... Anyway I thought I may as well write a guide on how to cure the problem...

    Steps 2 take
    [bold]Option 1 (If this doesnt work, option 2 will...)[/bold]
    1)First if u can't connect and recive your mail turn off your computer.

    2)Disconnect the power cable from the back of the modem....

    3)Leave it out for about 30 seconds to a minute

    4)Plug it back in and turn on your computer... If u have a newer computer connected through USB it should turn on automatically.

    5)Wait till you finish starting up and enter windows completly....

    6)Go into Outlook Express... U should b able to recive emails now....


    [bold]OPTION 2[/bold]

    9)Close the properties box.

    10)Remove your mail account
